We knew things have been forever changing this year. The signs have been everywhere. Massive flooding in Australia a few short weeks after their Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd told us in Israel that we would have to divide Jerusalem. The massive flood covered the Rudd's gigantic home state of Queensland. This was probably just a warning and not a final punishment.
Eleven short days after the Foreign Minister of Japan met with the Foreign Minister of Iran to inform him that Japan would supply Iran with nuclear fuel rods for its nuclear reactor in Bushehr, a massive earthquake/tsunami strikes the coast of Sendai, Japan. This triggers nuclear meltdowns (or near meltdowns) at four of six nuclear reactors at the Fukushima reactor facility south of Sendai. Keep in mind that it took G-d just 11 days to send this fierce retribution. (A key to the time is seeing direct retribution and it’s swiftness.)
Here we go again, but this time the judgments are coming frequent and fast. It is getting hard to keep up. A judgment happens and I say, let me write about this one. But before I sit down to compose a post, another one happens, and one has to write about that one too. Before you know it, the avalanche of judgments keeps coming at a pace that the mind cannot focus. Each one needs to be researched and discussed. So let us discuss just two.
I wrote an email to a friend, and this is what I sent him:
- Stay away from any city named after a Methodist Minister. Joplin was a Methodist minister that founded the city of Joplin, MO in 1873.
- Stay away from small towns with a majority Methodist population. Denning, Arkansas's only church was a United Methodist Church.
Both were destroyed by F-5 tornadoes, the worst kind. Those who chase tornadoes call F-5 tornadoes "The Finger of G-d". Here is the latest from the United Methodist Church: here and here. The first link is from The Blaze, Glenn Beck's outfit and is from the last ten days.
Devorah of Shirat Devorah added in a comment…
- Stay away from church towers. Feb 22, earthquake in Hist Church, New Zealand where the church tower fell. May 11, earthquake Spain where the church tower fell.
- Stay away from towns with negative biblical names. April 26, east Texas town of Edom has 100 homes destroyed.
G-d is working very fast now. Notice that part of the United Methodist Church's attack against Israel is to influence Obama to forever alter American foreign policy. The key point in all this is that they seek to divide Jerusalem by demonizing Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech indicates that he is going to play a profound role in the Geulah (redemption) process after all. I am not ready to pronounce his Mashiach ben Yosef just yet because he has to make many personal and public changes to fit that role. But the fact that this has all occurred around Lag B'Omer is profoundly significant, for it is from Lag B'Omer or the 33rd level of purity onwards that Moshiach ben Yosef begins to lead the world.
So pray tell, what did Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu do on Lag B'Omer morning? He and his wife Sarah took a 90 minute walk through the Washington DC National Mall. He exhilarated her according to Arutz-7 with his knowledge about the monuments and all the inscriptions on them all designed, built, and inscribed by 33rd degree FreeMasons on the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer.
Is P.M. Netanyahu a FreeMason? We hope not, because Moshiach ben Yosef has to get us all beyond the idea that the purpose of serving G-d is to make money or as the US Constitution says "To Promote the Common Welfare".
This is a dangerous time for Netanyahu. If he cannot lead us beyond the 33rd level G-d will find someone else who can. The ideas of the Golden Calf are so entrenched in modern society that perhaps the only way that the world will grow beyond the 33rd level is if the US dollar were to collapse. Is that about to happen? Those who monitor financial matters clearly say that currency stability and possible collapse is indeed in front of us for both the dollar and the euro.
Either Netanyahu will lead us to the next level, or G-d will find someone else with a Yud Key Vav in his name to lead us all to the next level. But Netanyahu, let us commend you on your speech. That walk with Sarah on Lag B'Omer seems to have turned you into a leader. You know that even though you received standing ovations from both houses of Congress, most of the world will hate you for talking about a united Jerusalem. Examples include the United Methodist Church and perhaps U.S. Vice President Joe Biden who seemed to forget to clap when you mentioned it. (Or maybe he was just asleep, with VP Joe we can never know.) This would be a good time to start building in Ramat Shlomo (neighborhood of Jerusalem that started the settlement flap with Biden) while VP Joe is snoring away.
We all know that you knew going into that speech that the “Palestinians” would be preparing their rejection statement while you were inviting them to talk about peace and more peace and how about some more peace talks while we are all talking about talking about peace. Be forewarned, the Israeli media organs are already preparing their attack strategy against you. They are scared to death of what is coming in September with that little United Nations vote for a Palestinian State. If they are scared, that is a good sign that everything will be all right.
Also be sure that the Israeli establishment is equally terrified. Israel's Attorney General's office is already preparing the trumped up charge that they are going to indict you with if you even demonstrate that you might take us all above and beyond America's thumb to the 34th level of purity. Are you prepared? In your years as Israel's UN Ambassador you used to receive advice from the Lubavitcher Rebbe and in recent years you sought out advice from Rav Mordechai Eliyahu. So from whom are you seeking out advice now? Anyone? No one?
Of all times in your life this is the time to find a Rav. May I suggest Rav Shalom Arush, shlita? He seems to know a thing or two about what is going on right now. Someone such as him can help you retrieve yourself from the 33rd degree FreeMason danger zone.
Edom has not really been surpassed yet. So he is going to fight tooth and nail to stop you if that is your intention. The 34th level of purity and above is rarefied air. No nation in world history except Israel under David, Shlomo, and Yehudah under Hezekiah has ever succeeded in going above and beyond the 33rd level. And even at that time, the rest of the world lagged behind.
So here's your opportunity, your last one at that, to continue to be a man and not a mouse. At the end of your speech you kept saying G-d bless America. May G-d bless you with multiple-fold strength because you are going to need it. But not to worry if you mess up at this juncture in history and fail.
No one, and I repeat no one, can stop the redemptive process that began on Lag B'Omer.
Some may ask, “what’s different about this year?” After all, the geulah blogs and myself (Dov bar Leib) have been writing about geulah hints and signs for some years already.
The answer is simple. On the cosmic calendar, 5765 was the First Year of Sukkot. The blessings on Sukkot such as a sweet smelling etrog depend on how much teshuvah we have done. Some people behaved really badly that year. They evacuated 10,000 Jews from their homes for not a single good reason whatsoever. 5771 is the Last year of Sukkot, the Year of Hoshana Rabba. G-d sends out all the judgments that he signed and sealed on Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur.
It is all top down. He is not waiting for our repentances out of love. He will force it upon us to repent out of sheer terror. Not to worry. If you have been decent in the area of human decency, He will be Infinitely compassionate. Only the indecent have a problem, such as those who supported in any fashion the unilateral evacuations from Gaza and the Northern Shomron.
5772 is a very special year of Divine goodness, the Year of Shmini Atzereth.
UPDATE: I am adding this so the message of this post is not misconstrued: The general judgement on a city can usually not be understood in the same way as a judgement on the individuals. The individuals who suffered and died did so in accordance to several different reasons that the Ramchal discusses in Derech HaShem. Therefore there is no real way of knowing why one individual suffers a calamity while another does not. The Ramchal points to suffering as a natural condition which brings an individual closer to G-d even if he did not necessarily sin in this incarnation of his soul. Of course, we wish the best for all the victims that died and their families, but if mentioning the root cause of the general reason for the calamity brings about reflection and efforts to change the names of cities named after famous Methodist preachers, then hundreds of lives can be saved. In short, this blog is not condemning any individual who died as someone that deserved to die in Joplin, MO or from any of the other tornadoes that have swept the Midwest of the USA. But we are obligated to see the important meaning behind tragedies in terms of what G-d expects of all of us especially in this Year of Hoshana Rabba.
